I could have sworn I had to use my CoCo 2 to run GofD - my CoCo 2 is an 
NTSC version - so I am not sure that makes a difference or not. 
Unfortunately, as I have noted before in other emails, my original copy 
won't boot - which is what prompted my whole "crusade" to get it running 
again, because at the time it seemed like I was the only person in North 
America who still had a (somewhat) working copy. I am glad to hear that 
there is another person out there who has it as well. Michael Crawford 
has a copy as well - he contacted me after seeing a post I had made on 

BTW, as far as your floppies of GofD are concerned, do you still have 
the original disk envelopes? If you do, what colors are they? I surmised 
(from my limited sample of Diecom software - which was only GofD) that 
they might have had various color printing on each of the disk 
envelopes. My two envelopes came in red and violet/purple - what color 
are your envelopes? If they are the same colors, then Diecom might have 
only used those. If you have other colors, then maybe there was a whole 
"rainbow" of them. It would be neat to have a scanned archive of all the 
colors of Diecom software disk envelopes...

Survey: Does anyone else on this list have any Diecom disk envelopes of 
different colors?
